And now for some lovely words from our lovely customers

Brooke,

I cannot tell you how amazing the event was at our house.  The food was unbelievable and service was over the top.  Everyone was great and Chris and George went above and beyond.  It goes without saying that as a leader you set an amazing example of service and quality.  The memories you created through all of your hard work hopefully are shared.  We have been so fortunate to have all of you in our lives.

Warm Regards,
Al

My wife and I were very happy with the Pig Roast Catering you did for us last weekend.  We are very grateful.  Our guests were very pleased and impressed.  Can’t wait until next time. We will be back.  I would recommend you to anyone.

Thanks again.
Randy

Hi Brooke, everything went SO wonderfully thank you! People kept raving about the food, it was so delicious. Great job all around!

Brooke,

Thank you does not begin to cover what we wanted to say to you and your staff and there is nothing I can say that would do justice for how amazing you guys were.

From when the planning first started, you helped guide me so much and helped me immensely and made sure I had every detail covered.  You went above and beyond and it was so appreciated

I didn’t think we could be more impressed with your services but then yesterday came and you blew us out of the water.  The amount of detail in the decorations was beyond amazing and you transformed our dream on paper to real life.  Then there was the food.  Everything was perfect and delicious and I was so excited for my leftovers 😊.  Finally, the hard work and professionalism of you and your staff…there are no words!  I can’t tell you how many compliments we got on the food and the service.  The bartenders told us that of all the weddings in Lake Geneva they have done, you guys have been by far the best catering service they have ever seen.

Our wedding day was perfect and everything we had hoped for.  That would not have happened if it wasn’t for all you amazing ladies.  You helped make the wedding of our dreams and for that we will always be grateful.

Sincerely,

Cheryl & Dave

Brooke – I just wanted to take a minute to thank you for all your assistance in making our event perfect!  All of your advice and attention to detail helped tremendously and the staff was great.  They were very attentive and made everything just seamless.    Oh and the food was excellent too!  Everyone raved about everything.

Cheryl

Brooke and all of Heybeck’s,

Thank you for helping to make our party one the best and most delicious functions EVER.  The food was fabulous and your staff was outstanding.  While Gil and Alex were amazing, Cheryl and Steve were above and beyond.  The decorations were spot on.  Please let your husband know that the napkins were perfect and beautifully wrapped!!
Thank you so much for reinforcing the fact that our decision to choose Heybeck’s was the right one! Lee
Wow! What a wonderful wedding! Thanks for making my dream Wedding come true! Everyone did an excellent job throughout the party to ensure a perfect evening. I couldn’t have asked for a better staff. The food was also outstanding and we had nothing but compliments on how good everything tasted.  Thanks again for the outstanding service and attention to all the details that went into your planning. I’ll talk with you soon and probably see you on Monday. Love Debs.

Hi Brooke:  I just wanted to thank you.  The party was perfect!  It came off without a hitch.  The staff you sent was great.  They were all very nice, helpful, efficient, and organized with the perfect guest contact.  The food was terrific.  Binny’s worked out great.  The set up went well, and  the tent looked beautiful with the red/white tablecloths, the lovely serving tables that were set, and the little lights we put up.

We were so happy.  Thank you for all your time, energy, great suggestions and patience in putting the party together.

Have a great day,  Ann

Hi Brooke,

I wanted to take a minute to say THANK YOU for everything you did for the wedding and last night.  I truly cannot express enough how incredible the food was and how many people last night and this morning talked about it- everything was soooooooooooooooo good!  Your staff was the best, they were all do nice and everything was done just perfectly.  Seriously, you have our business for every event we ever plan- we cannot thank you enough.

Thank you for all your help leading up to the wedding, all your advice (despite what others said.. :-)..) was so helpful, I can see why someone wouldn’t need a wedding planner with you guys doing an event because from start to finish I can see how you don’t miss a detail.

Thanks again, we were seriously so impressed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Jessica and Ryan

My gratitude for you is immeasurable.  I am so blessed to have met you and look forward to more events in the future.  I hope you know just how good you are at what you do.  Your professionalism, your knowledge, your amazing food, your ability to truly listen to your clients needs, your kindness to Sarah, your design vision and most of all your calm presence.  It must take a lot to shake you or you just cover it really well!  Either way, you are a true blessing!

Life is all about being on purpose & I pray you have joy in what you are so very good at doing.  I am to remind you that it is important to receive as well.  Life is short so remember to take some time to enjoy your moments with those you love.  Being present for yourself and family is even more important than what you give your clients!!!

Spirit is REALLY strong with me about reminding you of this!  NOT even kidding here.  The Universe will not interfere with your life choices due to free will.  I am being told to grab ahold of each of your shoulders, look you square in the eyes and tell you to see yourself and family with love.  Take a few moments EVERY day to be grateful for them & breathe in love.

Blessings to you!
Pam

Hi Brooke!!!

I have to once again tell you what an awesome job you and your staff did on Sunday!! I’ve received several sweet emails and calls from some of my guests saying what a nice party we held and the food and service was stellar. My sister in law is like I’m going to have to use them when I throw a party she LOVED the stuff mushroom and all the food she joked and said she ate for several. My other sister’s like the macaroni shooters were “the bomb” Then today I’m working out and my one trainer said “guess what?? A client asked me earlier this week if I knew of any great caters” and he said “as a mater of fact I was just at at an incredible party” and gave your name out and he told me that his client is now working with you. Besides all those sweet compliments the person I wanted most to enjoy it was my daughter Skye and she was so touched by the entire event. I’m so pleased how you make your host home an environment that guest enjoy being part of a party.  I have to share this because without you and your team the party wouldn’t have the same wow factor –

Thanks again for your service.

Sincerely,
Lauren B

Hi Brooke,

I want to send you my heartfelt thanks for such a wonderful party last night!  The food was absolutely superb!  We had a little over 20 guests and almost all of the food is gone.  I could not say which appetizer was my personal favorite; they were all delicious!  The server you sent, Kathy, was outstanding!  She was beyond my best expectations.  The food buffet that she set was beautiful.  I really appreciate the artistry that you and she created with the serving pieces, candles, and flowers.  It was stunning.  Kathy was an exceptional help last night.  Greg and I have never had the luxury of awakening to a clean kitchen the next morning after a party.  What a joy it is!  Thank you for all you did to make my party special.  I will definitely want to do this again and next time with more notice to you!  Thanks for making this impromptu get together a success!

Best wishes,
Cathy Z

Hi Brooke!

I just wanted to say thank you again for making our party such a success last night.  You and Baleigh did such a fabulous job of keeping things flowing at the right time and the food got rave reviews all around, as you know. 🙂

You were fabulous to work with from the get-go and I really appreciated your responsiveness and helpful suggestions throughout the planning process.  I had originally planned to use a different caterer that I had used before, but you were so friendly, professional, and helpful on the phone, I actually felt more comfortable entrusting the party to you.  Definitely a good decision! 🙂

I know you were swamped w/ the demands of Xmas/New years but I never felt rushed off the phone and I appreciate the last minute emails you forwarded, even as you were preparing to leave town yourself.

Please tell Baleigh thank-you again for us as well.

Sincere thanks,
Lisa L

Brooke,

Sorry it has taken so long for me to write to you and express our appreciation for a job well done.  The food was great.  The presentation was outstanding.  And, the cleanup, afterwards, was especially appreciated.  Please let your staff know how much we enjoyed their contribution, to the day.

If you need an endorsement or reference, please do not hesitate to ask.  We would be very happy to sing our praises.

Again, thank you very much, for making Sue’s party one to remember.

Jay

Hi Brooke

Annie and I would like to thank you and our server for your major roles in making our wedding last Saturday completely flawless. Nothing you and Chris (server) did went unnoticed. The food was phenomenal, the service was impeccable, the pig was gorgeous, the decorations were perfect! Thank you for your consummate professionalism, and please thank all of your staff for their skill/talent/attention to detail. Very impressive from start to finish! We had a non-pork-eater go back for FOURTHS…so delicious!

I could go on and on…it was a helluva party!!

Thanks again! Cheers!

Matt

Hi Brooke,

Tonight’s party was wonderful, and I owe that entirely to you! Thank you for your energy in planning, and your creativity in making it work within our budget. The food was unbelievably delicious and was displayed so beautifully! People were raving about everything, especially the chicken wings, meatballs and mac & cheese. I also loved the pimento cheese crostini. Kathy, Sarah, Baleigh, and Dobrinka were top notch – so friendly and helpful. I’m in awe over how clean my kitchen is after hosting 90 people here! The good news is that most everybody here is from Barrington, and several people asked who catered, so hopefully it results in business for you!

I will be by tomorrow with the table linens.

I can’t thank you enough!

Meghan

Dear Brooke,
Below is a heart felt thank you for all that you did to make our Daughter’s wedding a complete success. We hope you will be able to share this with any future Clients.

Heybeck’s Catering completely exceeded our expectations. We learned of  Hebeck’s from a comment at one of our potential venue options. We are so greatful we chose Brooke’s team,  but the most important was that our guests raved ” this was the best wedding cusine  ever! “.

Brooke was a dream to work with. She made a site visit of the rustic and unusual venue, created a layout, menus and a staffing plan to meet the Bride and Groom’s vision and the parents budget.

The day of the wedding we arrived to the venue after the ceremony and were ecstatic with what Brooke and her team had created. The friendly professionally dress staff passed delicious appetizers. The buffet table, bar and dessert table were exquisitely decorated. Our guests were invited to watch as they carved the pig which was really cool. The entire team ran all night long with smiles on Thier faces even after it started raining. Brooke kept us on schedule all night with a reassuring and authoritative ” your fine your fine ” which allowed us to enjoy the reception!

Brooke’s experience, eye for design, attention to detail and outstanding staff made our special event magnificent!!

Thank you!

John & Erin

Hi Brooke,

I can’t thank you enough for an AMAZING meal you made on Easter Sunday!  The lamb was so delicious – so soft and juicy!  The pork was amazing too!  Everyone was saying it was one of the best (if not best) lambs they ever had!  Thank you so much!!  Not only did you cook an amazing meal but you helped clean up (which was a huge help to me!) so nicely!!  You helped made our Easter extra special this year!  Thank you, thank you, thank you for everything!

We definitely will be reaching out to you again to host more parties of ours!!

All my best –
Tina

Hi Brooke

I never thought I’d be sending a thank you note via email – but by the time I get around to actually mailing one it will probably be next year so I’m sorry for doing it this way.

First – I have to thank you so much for saving me!  You were amazing and talked me off the ledge several times.

The food was absolutely outstanding and everything we could have hoped for.
Now to the staff – they were the most professional, hardworking individuals I have seen.

All of them – Rueben, Tessie, Vanessa and Debbie – it could not have succeeded without them.

The table decorations (which I really thought would be unnecessary since it really was a bunch of fool golfers) were out of a magazine.

I could not believe how beautiful it looked without going over the top.

So many people (even the guys) took pictures of it.

And I cannot tell you how many phone calls and messages both my husband and I received the next day from people all complimenting your food and your crew.

I cannot thank you enough. I promise you that you will be my only caterer for any future event (and I promise to give more notice). thank you again so so much and please thank the rest of the staff.

Nicki H

Brooke,

Both of you guys did an amazing job!  Everyone raved about your presentation and the food.  Will definitely recommend you to friends and family, and may need your help for the next party down the road.

Take care
Travis

To all Those Concerned,

My husband and I had a party on the evening of Saturday, September 22nd, catered by you simply wonderful people. It was a BBQ at Heller Nature Center in Highland Park to celebrate with our guests from out-of-town who were attending our son’s wedding the next day.

I cannot praise you and your staff enough. The party was magnificent fun in great part to your contribution. The buffet looked incredible, the food was outstanding, and the staff provided were quick, efficient, pleasant, accommodating, on schedule, and professional in every way. From dealing with Brooke from the beginning to the staff that Heybeck’s provided at the event itself, there was no aspect of our experience with your company that was anything less than wonderful. Brooke responded to weeks’ worth of questions with patience and knowledge, along with great suggestions.

It was a wonderful party, and I am so very happy we used your excellent service. Thank you for enhancing what was already a wonderful weekend. I hope to have an occasion to use you again, and I am certainly raving about you to all of our friends and family.

Thank you!
Sheila
